What say you?

The current govt is fine.
That would be the SNP.
Be interesting to see who wins the english regional elections in May.

where I am now-PAP,and has been for nearly 50 years(no united opposition in Singapore).

where I live really- depends who wants to win and can pay most!
Pinoys identify/vote for people,not parties,so president can be film star,military dictator or business person.
you can see its very US influenced.though current pres wanted to change to westminster system(didnt say if pre or post devolved,but some parts of country already devolved.

I will always vote Tory… why?

Because I left school at 16, joined the Navy, got on with life and did well, now own my own home, 3 nice cars including a classic one, sent my son to Uni on my own coin and can afford a decent holiday a year abroad.

Labour and the Limp Dems think this is not 'fair' and they should take the money I worked damn hard for and 'redistribute'… (don't you just love that term, they mean STEAL it), - and give it to welfare leeches and the lazy barstewards who couldn't be bothered to try and better themselves.

I say this is why the standards of British politics has gone down the toilet in the last 40 years or so.

Because you are exactly the same as those that will always vote Labour.

My thinking.


WTF do they mean by "Fairer" ? It's meaningless verbal diarrhea that sounds good by WTF does it mean? Society can not be fair, it's completely and utterly impossible for any society to be fair, unless you're willing to impose total conformity on everybody. You can set a level "playing field" but some people, even given all the assistance you want, are incapable of doing anything with themselves.

Of course the SNP is fine for Scotland - the English are picking up the bills for their largesse, just look at how the Barnett formula skews public expenditure to our friends in the north.

How would an independant Scotland have coped with RBS..........???

UKIP.

Despite my doubts about Cameron, I'm going to vote Tory. Two main reasons:

A vote for anyone else would mean these bastewards staying in power
I'm in a key Tory/Labour marginal, so my vote will count

And, as a bonus, the Tory candidate's a reservist with a HERRICK tour under his belt.

Still got my doubts about Cameron though... :(

Shouldn't we be voting the party (& their subsequent manifesto policies, despite containing elements to attract votes rather than having any potential practical application) as opposed to the party leader, or does one person really have as much power as contributors would have us believe?

I haven't a clue who I'll be voting myself. Residing in Glasgow which is usually a Labour / pro-welfare socialist fortress (don't think our area is big on SNP whom I personally abhor, whole bloody devolution / independence drive is a gravy train for pointless additional corrupt expenses fiddling Scottish politicians with their trivial agendas such as forcing Gaelic on us all etc).

I suppose I should be looking at the bigger issues for each party - who actually has the most realistic proposed plans for ('continued') economic recovery, defence, welfare, bloated public sector & immigration?

Considering Londoners get more spent on them per head than the Scot or even the Northern Irish, that is a bit of a hollow jibe, as the Scots are picking up tthe bills for londoners.

As for coping with RBS one hopes that we would have had better banking regulation in place than the Westminster government provided. The B(W)ankers only did what the government let them, why did the banks in many other countries not suffer the same problems. The reality was that the government, the city and the unions goaded Fred the Shred on to the one deal too many. Fred is the fall guy, but he was a short time before the unions darling with then saying he was worth every penny of his bonus, and some one the PM liked to be seen with. Also just think had Fred the Shred not done that last deal it would have been Barclays in the poo.

Neither, either local independant or UKIP.
The BNP are appaling, the limp dems are slightly wierd and my local independant was chuck out of the limp dems as a councillor and unlike the sitting tory MP lives locally, runs his business locally and doesnt want £70,000 a year to maintain a house in Kent over 40 miles away from us!

SNIP to save space
I think it's probably a mixture of the two: both policies and personality. In my case, I'm more inclined to trust the Tories to manage the economy better, although I don't think that their manifesto goes far enough in terms of what they'll do to reduce the debt and the deficit. To be fair, they won't have seen the books yet, so the promised emergency budget could be painful!

Where personality comes in, I think, is in terms of leadership. The PM is (or should be) a leader rather than a manager, and my doubts about Cameron are that I don't think he will have the moral courage to take decisions that he knows will make him and his Party very unpopular with a large percentage of the voting public.

I think he's a nice guy; and that's the trouble - we don't need a nice guy at the moment. We need a b'stard.
